faux protein frosty (taste’s just like wendy’s!)
serves one

ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) almond milk (or milk of your choice, i use unsweetened vanilla almond breeze by blue diamond)
  • 15 ice cubes.. maybe more!
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (use your favorite brand–it’s important that you enjoy the flavor. i like MRM whey natural vanilla or plant fusion vanilla bean)
  • 1-2 TB unsweetened cocoa powder (depending on how chocolatey you like it)
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum (this is the KEY ingredient)
  • 1/4 tsp guar gum (or use more xanthan if you don’t have guar)
  • sweetener of choice (in this one i used 1/4 of a frozen banana for my sweetener, but i always switch it up. other ideas: stevia packet, a few dates, xylitol, or agave)

directions:

  • blend, blend, blend.
  • devour.

here are the nutritional stats using the plant fusion protein powder and 1/2 a medium frozen banana:

SO good and so good for you!

i kid you not, this tastes identical to a wendy’s frosty. but it’s healthy. and i love it. a lot.
